The DCAT Research & Benchmarking Task Force will launch its second benchmarking survey, Value-Based Metrics, on May 9, 2017. The purpose of the survey, which is being conducted by DCAT along with an external research firm, is to provide our membership with valuable insights on the best practices and key metrics used by pharmaceutical companies and suppliers to measure the benefits of value-creation activities.
Who can participate:
The study sample will include both pharmaceutical companies and suppliers, excluding providers of supply-chain/logistics services, consultants, or other support services.
Get the results:
The final report will be made available to DCAT member companies on September 19th, and the results will be presented during a webinar later in the fall.
Please make sure that your company participates. Invitations to participate in the online survey will be sent to member company delegates (or their designated alternate) on May 9th. To find out who will receive the invitation at your company, contact Sr. Communications & Technology Specialist Erin Sanders at email@example.com.
